Flowers are beginning to bloom, the sunshine is lovely, and it feels like Spring is certainly here! Yet, in Melbourne, we know it will be a couple of months before we can truly shed the winter jackets ...

Luckily, there's nothing better than a warm cuppa on a chilly day or night, and with so many delicious, home-grown teas to choose from, it's the perfect time to explore some new tea flavours!

Whether you're looking for a pick-me-up in the morning, a balanced brew to sip on throughout the day, or something more soothing at night - there's a native Aussie tea that's perfect for any taste or occasion.

Try these five local teas, blends and tisanes:

1. Lemon Myrtle native chai from the Chai Room - A delicate blend of lemon myrtle with chai spices and single origin black tea, soaked in low GI organic coconut nectar.
